Protect your organization against the risk of kidnap for ransom with Aon.

Kidnap for Ransom and Extortion Solutions

Aon helps you protect your organization against the risk of kidnap for ransom, extortion, detention or hijacking, providing effective advice and financial protection.

There are 15,000 to 20,000 kidnappings reported globally each year, with many more going unreported. A kidnapping is not only traumatic, but it can lead to significant financial losses from ransom payments, associated costs, business interruption, litigation, adverse publicity and long-term reputation damage.

We offer kidnap for ransom and extortion insurance products from a wide range of insurers, offering the broadest choice of price, coverage and response consultants.


Aon provides security guidelines to help reduce your vulnerability to attack. We also offer senior executive resilience reviews as well as comprehensive and bespoke training for personnel who travel to high risk locations.

Financial protection

Aon’s proprietary insurance policy includes coverage for the costs of:

  • Ransom
  • Loss of ransom in transit
  • Legal fees and other associated costs
  • Fees and expenses of specialist response consultants (unlimited)

We also provide custom coverage for political repatriation, loss of earnings, express kidnapping, child abduction, hostage crisis, tiger kidnapping and disappearance, and expenses associated with malicious threats.


Aon’s policies provide financial reimbursement as well as immediate access to specialist response consultants, who provide advice and support to your crisis management team and the victim’s family throughout an incident.
